1965 mustang, 289 4 speed, black with black interior. Sold it for a thousand bucks, guy took out motor and sold it for a thousand bucks and kept car. I've tried buying it back several times in the past twenty years, but the guy won't sell it back to me, it's just sitting outside going to hell, oh well. I did an mvd search one day and found out he never changed the title over to his name, it still shows that I own it. Now he says he gave it to his daughter.
1979 Ford bronco, with a 400 and automatic. What a beast! Learned so much about off roading in that bronco! I literally went four bying everyday for two years, multiple hours a day! I could make a whole thread about all the adventures and ridiculous situations I put myself into! Oh, and all the mechanical things I learned to do because I broke a lot of stuff, and nobody to fix it but me, and it was my only vehicle, I drove it 40 miles round trip everyday to work and school. Some of my best memories were in that bronco. I ended up throwing the timing chain, so I thought I'd have a friend of a friend rebuild it that worked for a reputable engine builder, he charged me a grand, when I reinstalled it, it smoked and didn't run as well as I wanted, i found out later he didn't even rebuild it, he just fixed what was broken and put it back together. I had just bought a little Nissan hardbody to commute to work, so I sold the bronco for $2500. I could kick myself now!
1986 Olds Cutlass Supreme Broughm, beautiful car, white with white vinyl top and dark blue interior, what a great car, comfortable, never let me down. Sold it to a friend that drove it for four or five years before he sold it to a guy that made it into a lowrider.
1993 Nissan hardbody. Good truck, tons of torque, went through 5 clutches and throw out bearings in 25,000 miles. I was born driving a stick shift, so it wasn't my driving, something inside the tranny wasn't lined up true, after about 1500 miles the tranny would shake while letting out the clutch. Ended up just giving it back to Nissan.
1990 chevy prism. My grandmas car, after she passed away I kept it and my wife drove it for a couple years. Ended up getting in pretty bad accident and totaled it.
1986 Acura legend. A true legend, what a well built and engineered car, never a problem, gave it to my son when he joined the marines and he drove the shit out of it till it wasn't worth fixing, well I would have fixed it, but he was in California at 29 palms, and it wasn't worth me driving the truck and trailer to bring home to fix. This was in 2009 and the car had 250000 miles plus.
1989 Acura integra, another great Acura, so well engineered, I bought it with 40,000 miles from a lady that was a librarian, and her husband was a retired rocket scientist from NASA. This was my commuter car for five years plus, averaging 30,000 miles a year. When my son finished off the legend, i bought him a ticket home and he drove back in my integra. He ended up getting the motor rebuilt at 200,000 miles in San Diego when he was stationed at Pendleton. He still has it outside his house, he broke the tranny, and says he's going to fix it. We'll see.
1995 Ford f350 powerstroke 4x4, regular cab long bed. My dad bought band new, and he was rear ended by a Mitsubishi montero going 45 mph, no skid marks, the guy didn't even see the traffic stopped. My dad gave it to me, I took it to a friends body shop, and with the insurance money I was able to put a used bed and have the cab fixed and the whole truck repainted, minus all emblems and that stupid strip of plastic. I had that truck totally set up, snug top
, all my mechanical tools, everywhere I went I got complimented. I woke up in a panic one morning at four, I just felt something was wrong with my truck, I ran outside in my undies, sure enough, my truck had been stolen! I only had liability insurance, it was paid off so I thought that's all I needed. I ended up losing about $18000 in that deal! Still hurts me to think about, I would have killed the person if I had found out who did it! I was literally depressed for three months, I will never get over that one. Still have a dream that some day the police (or I)will run into it.
1997 F350 powerstroke 4x4 crew cab long bed. I was looking for another powerstroke for three months, I didn't have the money to buy one, but I needed another powerstroke! I saw this one with a little tiny for sale sign on the side of the road next to a boat shop and I stopped to check it out. Everything I was looking for, so I asked inside the boat shop about it. The owner had just put it out 5 minutes before I passed by, and he had a bet with his son that it would sell in one day, needless to say it did. I ended up getting a cash loan for 10 grand that took forever to pay back. I still have this truck, and until I got the Tacoma, all I drove for six years. 250,000 miles plus on it.
2005 Subaru legacy gt, my wife's car, we bought it new in 04, and its been a great car! Nothing but maintence, never had to replace anything else, plus it hauls ass, fun to drive!
2013 Toyota Tacoma t/x, awesome little truck, don't even drive the powerstroke anymore, unless to pull.
Thanks for making this thread, even if no one reads my ridiculous long post, it was nice to put these things down in writing!
